Last night we had a bit of a shaker - 6.9 just off the coast of Eureka in Humboldt County. I was sitting with Char and Navy - they didn't feel it but boy I did. Hey I KNOW earthquakes when I feel them. They kept insisting it was not. Until Foodie came out of his room, asking if we had just felt that.

We Californians are pretty funny. As soon as we feel the quake, everyone starts trying to describe it (was it rolling, shaky, the duration etc) and of course, we make a game out of guessing the Richter Scale reading. THEN after that, we either call our friends and family or social media or the radio stations to then, "talk about it" all over again.
I'd say, most Californians enjoy a good shake now and then. I admit, it excited me. Can't say I love them - but they are amazing when you look at them from a scientific-geographical point of view. And then of course the topic of "the BIG ONE" crops up.
We don't have as many fault lines up here in Northern California, however we do have 2 volcanoes. Occasionally we get a good jolt - just to let us know how insignificant we really are.
